The RiemannHilbert approach to strong asymptotics for orthogonal polynomials on [1, 1]
"... We consider polynomials that are orthogonal on [1, 1] with respect to a modified Jacobi weight (1  x) # (1 + x) # h(x), with #, # > 1 and h real analytic and stricly positive on [1, 1]. We obtain full asymptotic expansions for the monic and orthonormal polynomials outside the interval ..."

We consider polynomials that are orthogonal on [1, 1] with respect to a modified Jacobi weight (1  x) # (1 + x) # h(x), with #, # > 1 and h real analytic and stricly positive on [1, 1]. We obtain full asymptotic expansions for the monic and orthonormal polynomials outside the interval [1, 1], for the recurrence coe#cients and for the leading coe#cients of the orthonormal polynomials. We also deduce asymptotic behavior for the Hankel determinants. For the asymptotic analysis we use the steepest descent technique for RiemannHilbert problems developed by Deift and Zhou, and applied to orthogonal polynomials on the real line by Deift, Kriecherbauer, McLaughlin, Venakides, and Zhou. In the steepest descent method we will use the Szego function associated with the weight and for the local analysis around the endpoints 1 we use Bessel functions of appropriate order, whereas Deift et al. use Airy functions. 1 Supported by FWO research project G.0176.02 and by INTAS project 00272 2 Supported by NSF grant #DMS9970328 3 Supported by FWO research project G.0184.01 and by INTAS project 00272 4 Research Assistant of the Fund for Scientific Research  Flanders (Belgium) 1 1

In the early nineties, Fokas, Its and Kitaev observed that there is a natural RiemannHilbert problem (for 2 2 matrix functions) associated which a system of orthogonal polynomials. This RiemannHilbert problem was later used by Deift et al. and Bleher and Its to obtain interesting results on orthogonal polynomials, in particular strong asymptotics which hold uniformly in the complex plane. In this paper we will show that a similar RiemannHilbert problem (for (r + 1) (r + 1) matrix functions) is associated with multiple orthogonal polynomials. We show how this helps in understanding the relation between two types of multiple orthogonal polynomials and the higher order recurrence relations for these polynomials. Finally we indicate how an extremal problem for vector potentials is important for the normalization of the RiemannHilbert problem. This extremal problem also describes the zero behavior of the multiple orthogonal polynomials. 1 Introduction Recently it was observed that ...

Abstract. It is proved that the limiting distribution of the length of the longest weakly increasing subsequence in an inhomogeneous random word is related to the distribution function for the eigenvalues of a certain direct sum of Gaussian unitary ensembles subject to an overall constraint that the eigenvalues lie in a hyperplane. 1.
